No. 112 – Triple treble corners

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This is another lovely colour combination from our designer: the Mauve and Lime Green is a winner, squared off by the dark Navy. The square starts off quite round until the fifth round, where the shaping is quite dramatic. We have half-trebles at the sides, gradating up… Read More »

No. 111 – Teal cobweb

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about the lovely Teal yarn, such a calm and sophisticated colour, I think, and the perfect foil to all the gorgeous bright colours we have in our throw. This design gets interesting in the second and third rounds where each treble, or pair… Read More »

No. 110 – Orange pips

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This square looks a lot like a juicy slice of orange, complete with pips. The third, Vanilla round is formed from groups of three double-trebles together so the shaping doesn’t happen until the fourth and fifth rounds.Here’s the film of Square 110. Happy crocheting, Katy x

No. 109 – Open corner square

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week’s square is all in Turquoise, but with a twist. The corners have a long chain, three chains in rounds two and three, followed by four chains in the fourth round – linked by two-treble clusters. I don’t think we’ve had clusters in the corner before?… Read More »

No. 108 – Bright star

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! Colours are a tonic on a dull day, so here is a super bright combination to keep you smiling through the rain, with Orange and Bright pink together at the heart of this square. Some of this pattern took me a while to understand, just me being… Read More »

No. 107 – Fat green ring

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week starts, as last week’s square did, with a padded ring wrapped eight times around your finger. Then we move on to treble clusters, so far so much the same, but the rest isn’t similar at all, so don’t say there isn’t variety in this series.… Read More »

No. 106 – Daisy daisy

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This square starts with a Sunshine Yellow padded ring, much like a magic circle but worked over more wraps, eight in this instance. Wrap the yarn around one finger, but be careful not to pull too tightly or you may cut off the blood flow to your… Read More »

No. 105 – Periwinkle granny

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week we are having a rest with a simple granny square that has a filet crochet border. Don’t think of ‘simple’ as being short changed, on the contrary, working a pattern or stitch that you are familiar with is a great time to start enjoying the… Read More »

No.104 – Mauve petal clusters

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! We’re back to the squares, and this week we have five super colours to use, Teal, Lime Green, Navy, Mauve and Turquoise. The first round has two-treble clusters, while the third uses four-treble clusters, just to keep us on our toes. The shaping happens in the third,… Read More »

No.103 – Sewing section seven

Welcome back to the Art of Crochet blog! This week is all about the edging and sewing up of the last twelve squares. You’ll need plenty of the Vanilla yarn, but don’t forget to wash your hands or you’ll end up with some grubby, off-white squares! The square are divided into three groups, starting with… Read More »
